I had an interested thought this morning…. If someone were to ask you, who is _______ (fill in the blank with a name of someone you know about), how would you reply? 6 months ago, you might give a brief explanation and then follow up with a, “you should Google him/her.” Today, I believe most of us would say, “You should Facebook him/her.”

Forget Google, Facebook Me!

This is a big deal for a few reasons

1- Just as the term Google became a verb, so has Facebook.  When a website name becomes a verb, is that when it’s finally made the crossover to big time? *I know we’ve been using Facebook as a verb for a while, but I think it’s now a more used verb than Google.

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Digg
  • Evernote
  • Pinterest
  • Gmail
  • Delicious
  • LinkedIn
  • StumbleUpon

2- People are turning to the core of their social sphere for a lot more these days.  We’d rather refer to a stream of live information than turn to Google for their potentially dated insight.

I’ll prove it….Facebook me! You’ll find the most up-to-date, live information about me and what I do/ am doing. More so than on a Google search with dated web pages that I haven’t had the time to SEO!
